Has been made very much a tourist destination since my first visit 13 years ago. Wasn’t too impressed that payment was required for parking. However, the battlefield has brilliant notice boards and signage up and is a credit to the Historic Places Trust

The visitor centre with the exhibition was superb. I enjoyed the fact that the history is being narrated from both sides. The 360 experience of the battle is fantastic. The work through the moors and the clans’ stones is touching.
